Lutein is a type of vitamin called a carotenoid. It is related to beta-carotene and vitamin A. Lutein is one of two major carotenoids found as a color pigment in the human eye (macula and retina). It is thought to function as a light filter, protecting the eye tissues from sunlight damage. Many people think of lutein as "the eye vitamin."
- It is commonly taken by mouth to prevent eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
- It reduces oxidative stresses in the eye and lowers chronic inflammation that can contribute to cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
